Default New poll shows majority of Americans want Congress to investigate Trump's contact wit

New poll shows majority of Americans
want Congress to investigate
Trump's contact with Russia
A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found 53% of Americans agreed Congress should investigate contact between Russia and President Donald Trump's inner circle believed to have happened before the election.

Only 25% of people who responded to the NBC/WSJ poll believed Congress should stay out of it, and 21% did not have an opinion, the poll found.
Poll: Majority want Congress to probe Trump Russia ties - Business Insider

That's a ratio of 2 people want it investigated for every 1 person who doesn't want it investigated.

Of course, with Repubs controlling both sections of Congress, this investigation will never happen... If, as many Repubs have posited, it's all smoke and mirrors, it would provide a Republican congress a platform to document that.
But of course, they don't want to put their money where their mouth is on this.

Let's see, repeal and replace Obamacare, reform the tax code, promote economic growth, rein in the unaccountable bureaucrats of Dodd Frank, get control of our broken immigration system including restoring the rule of law, and replace the unfair multinational trade deals with bilateral ones favoring the US or cater to never Trumper witch hunts searching for the Russian boogeyman. Gee, it's really no choice if moving the country forward is the objective.

A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll

Aren't they the ones Trump had banned from the press conference for "Fake news"?

Partisan hacks who call them selves reporters.

Were they wrong with election polling? Why should one think suddenly the can get it correct?

Have they EVER printed one friendly comment about Trump, even one?

They are so fuqing biased I would not even want to be responsible for bringing them here for discussion. Every one on the right knows these political hacks are left wing shill's posing as journalists. You can't do this every day, day in, and day out, with out people noticing who the idiots and liars really are. Wa Po is the other of the trifecta of useless idiots who claim to be MSM reporters. Partisan hacks is all they will ever be to a Republican.

This is War. The MSM seem to think all they have to do is take down Trump. They do not see that in fact it will be the American people who will take down the MSM for their partisan lies.

We ae already winning by electing Trump over the hostile media who covered him.

In the process we put Hillary Clinton out to pasture. Do you realize how powerful that is? And We took 33 States and made them entirely Republican.

Yet the main stream "yappers" still think they can claim a "victory"?

The MSM is getting it's arse kicked. No luck involved.

There are now alternatives to these left wing liars.

The obvious point is that Congress should spend it's time on enacting the agenda they promised during the campaign not on a partisan circus "investigation" smearing Trump for the Democrats getting hacked.

Do you have your brain on an endless Trump hate loop crowding out everything else? It sure looks like it from your comment.

Can't they do both?
Funny how it came to investigations BEFORE the election, you guys were happy with wasting time targeting partisan investigations with no meaningful outcome...

But the reality is that they'll do neither. And you'll look the other way while Repubs refuse to fulfill promises on economy and jobs, and think partisanly glad thoughts regarding Congress not investigating Russia problems.

As I said earlier:
Of course, with Repubs controlling both sections of Congress, this investigation will never happen... If, as many Repubs have posited, it's all smoke and mirrors, it would provide a Republican congress a platform to document that.
But of course, they don't want to put their money where their mouth is on this.

And what do majority polls do????...

Poll: Majority disagree with not charging Hillary Clinton

Quote:
A majority of Americans say they disagree with the FBI's decision not to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server while she was secretary of state, according to a new poll.

... until it comes to derailing somebody else's thread, eh?



And regarding your poll, it comes from JULY.
A lot happened afterwards.
It would be fascinating to see a current poll. During the time-frame when the right has shown a primary interest in NOT charging her after the election...
